Moving... and the old old house

We are moving from a house built in 1932 to an apartment. With the economy the way it is, we just thought we should probably pare back. We are at that process of moving where everything but the beds, bathrooms and clothes have been moved over to the apartment. So we are still sleeping in the house.

This morning we woke to sounds of rushing water. Apparently we sprung a leak in the pipes somewhere-- I think between the kitchen and laundry room. So, 3" of water in the basement, flooded laundry room, partially flooded kitchen and it was all we could do to just turn the power to the pump off. Our poor landlord will hear my voice on his voice mail when he wakes.

I will not miss the plumbing and electrical problems of an old house.
